And Xcom has some serious balance problems. It can be fun, but it can be incredibly frustrating as well.

BG2 was an absolute masterpiece of PC RPGing. Its expansion pack was also flawless and added hours upon hours of content for the game. The odds of creating a BG3 to rival BG2 are one hundred to one, or worse!
There are two games that rank in terms of masterpieces of cRPG's, in order: Planescape: Torment and BG2+ToB. You're right that the chance would be so low it'd be stupid, considering how easy they've made things in the last ~25 years people would be upset if there wasn't highlighted map points.
Right time to go nostalgic, off to play BG and BG2...relive them glory days.

"could" meaning others could, but not me. My first campaign (non-iron man) took me 40 hours with plenty of save scumming and overwatching every turn after moving a few squares. I'm still assuming XCOM 2 is artificially shorter with the urgency of the countdoom doom clock thing.
The doom clock can be very effectively held back from what I experienced so far... 16 hours in it's at 4 bars... you can focus down the end-goal but it doesn't seem very smart to do that, since you can not do research while you do that. So you have to balance that vs research vs missions and vs squad health. Gravely wounded soldiers are around 2 to 4 weeks out. And this hampers your ability severly, higher ranked soldiers are extremely powerful (though I think you could win every mission with a rookie squad (that has full tech armor and plasma) too, you just need to savescum a ton)

Personally I think E:D is highly overrated and with the stunt they pulled with the pricing on their "expansion" they should get all the heat atm. I paid way too much for a shell of a game with the original E:D and now they ask me to pay the exact same amount again for adding just a tad more depth to a game that was as shallow as a Tunisian mudpuddle to begin with.
My thoughts exactly. So disappointed in E:D.
To be honest anyone who backed elite dangerous should have known that he didn't get anywhere near enough money to make the thing and he was dragging you along if you had any clue how much it costs to make a modern videogame.
To be honest anyone complaining about Elite Dangerous was expecting a totally different game than promised. They pitched a new version of Elite, they delivered 100% minus the offline component.
Just because they don't like it because they thought it would be something different doesn't mean ED/Frontier are to blame. It's like buying Half Life expecting a Super Mario experience then saying Valve dropped the ball because you were hoping for Mario.
ED is just this decades remake of the original, not the BDSSE.
